My System Specs


Literally the day that I installed OO.o my drive picked up the errors and wouldn't boot into windows. I couldn't do anything to erase it. The installer was corrupted, add/remove programs didn't work, etc. Windows Restore couldn't do anything because of the corrupted files. It just completely fubared my system. I'll be leaving OpenOffice alone for the time being, I think.

EDIT: Unfortunately I don't have the necessary skills to knowledgeably diagnose what went wrong.

I wonder if there's some bad 'sectors' (is that what they're called with NAND?) that once the drive reached a certain capacity, failed?

Can you recommend a good program to diagnose my SSD? I want to make sure there's no more bad spots before I go through the trouble of installing all of my games.
